The MEANING behind this painting:  There is so much “noise” out there today, coming at us from all directions.  Sometimes you need to protect yourself and try to be in a separate place from most of the distractions.  Do you feel like this in your world or environment at times?

What Stimulates My Abstract Painting Growth?

Spring is definitely my “Go” signal for my abstract painting renewal.   Spring always brings out the growth hormone in me.  What about you?  The new, green sprouts coming out of the ground, the winter is finally over, and the new spring fashions and gadgets are in the stores.  Maybe my spring garden photos will inspire you as they do me to reach deeper into that space where inspiration and motivation lives.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome”. ~Anne Bradstreet

Because I am a gardener, seeing that new growth coming out of the ground gives me that extra excitement, push, and motivation to start new projects, get in the groove of solving problems and cleaning and organizing the old stuff that has been hanging around all winter.

What does it for you?

I remember when I was growing up, my mother would have to do her spring cleaning and every room and closet had to be turned upside down and gone through to clean and organize so that we started off the season in the right way.  I don’t know if that is how many people greet Spring today, but when it comes to my business, and my painting, I do get that “Spring Fever” bug where I have to, not only clean, organize and sort out my office and studio, but try something new or go for some fresh new approach to creating my art.

I am not sure what it will be this year but I have been experimenting with some smaller paintings that aren’t a big stretch from my current, abstract, acrylic paintings but they are a little more free and playful.  You don’t have to go far afield but I find one thing leads to another.  That is the beauty of creating; the ideas are endless once begun.

Random Scribbles 1 Larger - 12" X 12" X 1.5"

Random Scribbles 1 Larger – 12″ X 12″ X 1.5″

So this is what I have playing with among other things.  Naming them Random Scribbles for now.  These abstract, acrylic paintings can be mixed and matched any way  you want or used alone.

What do you think?

Please feel free to comment and leave a message on what makes you get a spurt of growth.

Some new paintings for your [re]viewing…

Most of the paintings in the gallery on the right side of this window are new images that I will be showing at my solo exhibition at the Artworks on Main, 165 N. Main Street, Mooresville, NC.  The exhibition “New Works by Joyce Wynes” will be held June 9 – July 7.  Please join me at the opening reception on June 11, 6-9 pm.  This is not a full representation of my newest work but a sampling.  Please feel free to make comments on your feelings about any of the images as it is always helpful to artists to get reviews of their work.
